The Stanford Cardinal are surprisingly only up 10 points at halftime over the UCLA Bruins. Andrew Luck has thrown only two incompletions, starting the game 10 for 12 for 85 yards with one touchdown throw on his first drive. Fairly modest figures from the Heisman Trophy candidate, but super-efficient nonetheless. Oh, plus he's got a catch too--check that here.
What should be concerning is that the Stanford defense is conceding a lot of yardage sans Shayne Skov. Richard Brehaut has actually made some crucial throws to keep the Bruins in it, and is 9 for 14 on the game for 126 yards. He managed a crucial late first half drive and found Joseph Fauria in the end zone to give UCLA their first touchdown of the game.
However, Brehaut fumbled the ball in UCLA territory on a Chase Thomas sack and recovery, and Stepfan Taylor eventually punched it in for Stanford's second touchdown of the game. Another big Taylor rush (now with 77 rushing yards on 11 carries) set up a Jordan Williamson field goal to give Stanford an early 17-0 lead before UCLA eventually got their first score.
